From Grandma's Attic

My grandparents love to keep things, I suppose that's where I get it from. So when I was looking for a nightstand I skipped Craigslist and Ebay and went straight to my grandparent's attic. Upon some digging I found this gem. 
By the time this picture was taken, I had already removed the hardware from the front. But as you can see it's you're typical wood night stand. So I wanted to spruce it up a bit with some white paint.  Now I have spray painted only two things in my life, this nightstand, and a set of Mickey Mouse shaped bookends.  I struggled with the book ends (granted I was 8 or 9) so I was a bit nervous to spray paint today. Yet I sanded a bit to remove any imperfections and started to spray.

I was pretty pleased the way things have worked out, despite my nerves about the paint. I also painted the hardware of the drawer black to go with my theme.
